Title: Response of grapevines to partial drying of the root system / Peter Ronald Dry.
Author: Dry, Peter Ronald
Issue Date: 1997
School/Discipline: Deptartment of Horticulture, Viticulture and Oenology
Abstract: The general hypothesis tested in this study was that: 'partial drying of the root system of grapevines will result in reduced vegetative growth with beneficial effects for fruit yield, fruit composition and water-use efficiency'. Previously published work has suggested that partial drying of the root system may give rise to non-dydraulic root-derived signals capable of changing leaf development and transpiration.
